Wherever these laws have been in place for five years or more, parents and students agree, it's good.

Joe Ries has always said that no matter how great of a job we do in the classroom and in the car, we are still faced with the fact that young drivers make a lot of choices due to attitudes, and attitudes are formed from day one with their family. That's really where a lot of difficulties arise.

You're going to get surprised as a new driver. You're going to have heart-stopping experiences.

I see this as falling a couple years behind the original schedule.
